We have decided to join Down-Under with the Northern Hemisphere, this is our journey of everyday PowBell life, from the boring to the obscure, which involves our sober times and not so sober times!
We hope to entertain with our local and not so local experiences.
Please join us in sharing your own times / experiences. Really interested to hear and see your own adventures which can be shared.
